Drive to the conditions; roll-over prevention on unsealed roads.
Duration: 1 Day.
An unsealed road is unstable and dangerous. Particularly when the road surface is dry, drivers become overconfident and mistakenly feel in control.
Vehicle roll-overs are often caused by skids, which are caused by excessive speed for the circumstances, over-steering in relation to speed (which may not be excessive), harsh acceleration, or sudden and excessive braking.
This driving course is designed specifically for people who operate 4wds on unsealed roads in rural or remote areas.
